It seems that the Democrats are opposed to Photo ID for voting but they want to put a spy chip in your Drivers License to prove who you are. the chip has a short range so they can't track you but if you attend a rally advocating free speech a government agent could move around the gathering with a reader and get the names and addresses of people who attended the rally. It seems that this issue is uniting both the left and right. http://wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=90008 Do you think this is a good idea? One of the technologies than have been talked about for medical records is a card with your medical records on it and some say that your medical records could be placed on an embedded chip in your hand. Could your medical records also contain a chip to to use the same technology as the ID chip being proposed by some in the administration?

Bingo Bob! I and several others at the college predicted that this chip technology would slowly be made part of our lives and then, finally, implantation would be a requirement. It's happened just as we predicted. First our animals...can't let doggie go without a chip. What if he's picked up or lost? Now they're talking about implanting it into old people so they can be quickly located if they wander off. Now the medical reconds issue and...hey, now that we think about it...let's put it on a microchip and force you to have it inserted or....well the possibilities are endless. No medical care if your don't have a chip. How about not being able to do business at your bank? Require all employers to use direct deposit like U.S. Sugar does down here and now you can't get your money without the chip. I've never trusted our government since this technology was developed...and it's been awhile. I'll live off the land and see if the Seminoles will help me with medical care before letting anyone implant a chip in me.

Under National Health Insurance would you trust the card they give you to carry to get medical attention. After all if you are doing nothing wrong (in their eyes) what do you have to fear?

Right now I get my health insurance through the V.A. and my card is paper. If I'm forced to use a new, plastic one I'll trust it after I soak it in water for awhile. What I have to fear is the violation of my rights to privacy.

Be careful or they may want to send you to a reeducation camp for a few weeks. The Next thing you will want is to keep the money you earn.

Where the h-e-double hockey sticks are all the people who were screaming at the Bush administration over things like this? We could sure use you now. I was opposed to real ID and RFID tags under him, and I am equally opposed to it now. So far, my state has refused REAL ID complience and we had better continue to do so (if governor lynch knows whats good for him) and every state in the union should be doing this. This is not an area the government has any business in whatsoever, it is a state matter and the very idea of putting a tracking chip in an ID is an abomination and blashemes every ideal this nation was founded on.

The administration wants to know everything about us so why does he not want us to know about his education and background? Trust and honesty goers both ways.
